  1. Urban Sketchers

    I’m very much enjoying this so far. A group weblog from dozens of sketching people in cities around the world. Some inspiring stuff.

  2. Photographic collection homepage from London transport museum

    More than 16,000 historical photos of London, nicely browsable. You can even add comments to each one. Would be nice if they enlarged bigger, but otherwise fab.

  3. BBC News | Health | Bee Gees hit could save your life

    I’m amazed this non-news story got so much traction on blogs and news sites. There’s nothing to it at all. (Plus, surely Soul II Soul’s ‘Back to Life’ (102 BPM) would be even better.)

  4. The Atlantic Online | November 2008 | The Things He Carried | Jeffrey Goldberg

    Describing how easy it is to get stuff past US airline security. “Security theatre”: it’s all just for show. (via everywhere)

  5. Conditional classnames

    An easy way to apply Internet Explorer CSS hacks. So simple that, in retrospect, it’s hard to believe no one’s thought of it before. Smashing.

    Pressed the wrong key in Thunderbird and deleted ten months of email off the server. Feel a bit ill. Hopefully I can recover it.

    Marinading tofu for tonight's stir fry while listening to 'Pick of the Pops'.

    Fired up PS2 for the first time in an age to find things will only (and always) move top right. Hmm, broken controller I guess. Bah.

    On wet days like this the Barbican does look like some kind of magnified concrete industrial drainage unit.
